Tyga too sick to give his debt testimony
19 October 2016, 21:55
Los Angeles - Tyga's debt testimony was cut short on Tuesday after he claimed he wasn't "well enough" to proceed.
The 26-year-old rapper was scheduled to take part in a debtor's examination in Santa Monica, California, in order to discuss celebrity jeweller Jason Arasheben's lawsuit against him but, after just two hours of grilling, the Rack City hitmaker asked for the questioning to end because he felt he was too sick to proceed.
Mr. Arasheben's lawyer Danny Abir of Abir, Cohen, Treyzon and Salo told PEOPLE: "Tyga wasn't well enough to proceed about two hours into the examination."
However, Tyga's sickness raised a few eyebrows in the boardroom as he also failed to present documents - including bank statements - like he'd been asked.
The legal representative for the opposing party explained: "Considering there are a number of documents we asked him to produce that he had not brought with him and the fact that we still have a lot more questions to ask, we have agreed for him to return with the documents on 1 November for the remainder of the examination."
The rapper was asked questions related to his finances, such as his source of income to support his lifestyle and the lavish gifts for his girlfriend Kylie Jenner.
Tyga - real name is Micheal Ray Stevenson - was initially set to take part in the examination by 6 October but the date has now been pushed back to the beginning of next month in order to accommodate his lawyer Shawn Holley's schedule.
However, if the Cash Money singer and his girlfriend Kylie fail to appear when asked while the case is still unresolved, a warrant will be issued for their arrest.
While the couple are set to appear in court at some point, the 19-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is still yet to be questioned under oath.
Mr. Abir said: "There may not be a need to speak to Kylie depending on the answers we receive from Tyga, but we have not asked those questions yet."
Kylie has been pulled into the legal case as it's believed she's a "third party witness as she is in receipt of items that used to belong to Tyga."
Throughout their on-off two-year relationship, Tyga has bought his girlfriend a $320k Ferrari for her 18th birthday, a $189k Maybach for her 19th birthday and, most recently, a diamond "promise ring" as a token of his loyalty to her.
